The Curse is Broken Tuesday, Jan 23 2018 

I recently had the pleasure of seeing the stage play, The Curse is Broken, written and directed by William Scales. The subject matter was heavy and well developed. This stage production opens with a happy family, success was theirs until one tragic moment in time changed everything. This highly emotional subject matter had me in tears, had me laughing and ultimately finding peace as the family worked through the tragedy.

The Curse is Broken looks at the devastation parents’ family destroying habits can have on a children into adulthood, how tragedy can drown the strongest in the bottom of the bottle and the strength it takes to break the cycle of alcoholism and come out on the other side.

In talking with William, I learned that this phenomenal cast would find time on non scheduled rehearsal days to get together and fine tune their roles. This dedication to the script and subject matter paid off with a play I recommend all to see when William brings this back to the stage. (I highly recommend bringing tissue.)

Congratulations to Jermaine Jacox and DaVonne Dianne as the grieving parents, Katie McClung as the child who finds herself taken from her family, Rayshwan Chism, Saundra Charleston, Raven Melinda and Danyol Jaye as the supportive family members with their own baggage and Cer Collins and Damian Wright as the thief who just needed something and the pastor seeking forgiveness for the thief. You all were shining examples of what hard work and dedication really is.

Thank you William Scales for sharing your vision with the world, your first stage play and you hit it out the park. I look forward to seeing what comes next.

Next week is Valentine’s Day. A day designed for lovers to show their love for one another. As someone who has a passion for living green, I have published an article that offers eco-friendly ideas that are not only good for couples but for entire families. After reading the article, I welcome open discussion and more ideas like dimming the lights and using flameless candles or 100% soy candles made locally.

Unemployed: Staying Relevant During Long-Term Unemployment Thursday, Feb 7 2013 

Unemployed Cover Final1

This book was a direct response to hearing reports of people being told to not apply for jobs if they have been out of work for more than six months. Many were saying they did not know what to do next. I have compiled information for ways people can stay active while unemployed and use the options to keep their resume up to date effectively closing long gaps between jobs. Even if this book does not work for you, you may know someone who is in need of help and encouragement. There are solutions, it is just a matter of finding what works best for each individual.
